Today – with the premiere of our latest video - NVCA officially announced the World’s Largest Office Hours which we will be hosting at VentureScape on May 14th from 3:00 – 5:30 p.m. Check out the energy force that is building in San Francisco:
A special thanks to the team at Scale Venture Partners including Kate Mitchell, Sharon Wienbar, Rory O’Driscoll, Rob Theis and Jaime Lovejoy who let us turn a giant leaf blower on them again and again and never complained once (well… maybe Rory had something to say.) This video also stars Venky Ganesan of Globespan Capital Partners who is chairing the Office Hours event on behalf of our Board. Rounding out the actors are the amazing team from Greenstart (Rachel Barge, Kacey Klonsky and Mandel Lum) and our own PR Counsel extraordinaire, Matthew Stotts from Tenor Communications. I think we owe him a new shirt. The mustard was flying! This video, like Deep Dives, was shot by the outstading team of Tom and Melissa Dowler at Long Haul Films.
And if you think the energy portrayed in the video is a stretch – we can tell you for certain that it is not. We already have close to 50 of the best venture capital firms in the country signed up to meet with and mentor founders at Office Hours. And the applications from entrepreneurs are pouring in. You can read all about the firms, the process, and how to apply at the VentureScape Office Hours site here.
We can't wait to see hundreds of you on May 14th! Come into the light…..
